The prologue 2012

by

On the way to Europe… we flew right over Uluru and Kata Tjuta, the Kimberley coast, Javanese volcanoes.

An eight hour stopover in Kuala Lumpur – enough time to take the KL Ekspres into town and visit a few old haunts. The Masjid Jamek is now pretty hemmed in by tall buildings and the elevated light rail.

Just around the corner is a leech clinic.

We walked along Jalan TAR past the Coliseum Hotel – it looks unchanged but we didn’t stop in for a sizzling steak.

Had a mediocre roti canai and teh tarik and a superior kway teow in Chinatown. KL’s old city centre is not in good shape – the Chinese shop houses are looking pretty crumbly. KL continues to spread with new condos and housing developments stretching out towards the airport.
